Association of Russian Lawyers for Human Rights congratulates the Egyptian people with a victory in fighting for the democracy and the resignation of President Hosni Mubarek.
The experts of Association believe that the Egyptian people could dispel the myth about the impossibility of democracy in Muslim countries, as well as the myth that using repressive machine can hold power.
Events in Egypt once again proved that it does not matter such brutal and corrupt regimes, it does not matter nor how tyranny tries to keep its power, if the regime is not democratic and does not protect human rights and freedoms, it will inevitably collapse. The fact that these events took place in the heart of the Arab world shows that the processes of democratic development are global and are the inevitable and certainly other totalitarian regimes will fall sooner or later.
Events in Egypt - the historical moment demonstrates that united people and real civil society can determine political regime and future of country.

18.01.2011 Letter of solidarity with the Tunisian Lawyers

Dear Colleagues,
The European Association of Lawyers for Democracy and World Human rights (ELDH) is gravely concerned about the excessive violence of Tunisian security forces against Tunisian lawyers as well as other protesters. ELDH condemns all unjustified attacks on lawyers and their arbitrary arrests. ELDH fully supports the general strike which has been announced for Thursday by the Tunisian Bar Association in protest over the brutality of Tunisian Security forces against lawyers.
ELDH also condemns the ongoing crackdown by Tunisian authorities on a wave of protests sparked by the attempted suicide of a young fruit seller who later died of his injuries.
Tunisians must be allowed to express their grievances and freely protest. ELDH is shocked by the reports that more then 50 protesters have been killed by the Tunisian police and the army.
According to Amnesty International Tunisia has a sad reputation of violation of human rights. The rights to freedom of expression, association and assembly are curtailed, and journalists, lawyers and human rights activists are prosecuted and harassed. There are reports of arbitrary arrests, torture and other ill-treatment of detainees.

ELDH demands the immediate and unconditional release of all arrested lawyers in Tunisia
the compensation of all material and immaterial damages
the prosecution of the accountable officials
the respect of human rights by the Tunisian Government in particular of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, which has been signed and ratified by Tunisia
In solidarity
Thomas Schmidt
ELDH Secretary General

The experts of Russian Anti-Corruption Civil Society Center Clean Hands have invited officially Arnold Schwarzenegger the outgoing governor of California to participate in the civil anticorruption project Mobile Office as participant of the civil mobile group  fighting against  corruption in Russia.
As the specialists of Clean Hands said, Arnold Schwarzenegger a Republican has repeatedly announced among World Mass-Media that after leaving his post of governor, he would devote himself to nonprofit work. The specialists of Clean Hands asked Arnold Schwarzenegger for trying himself as civil activist and entering the team of Mobile Office to work with Russian citizens and their complaints about corruption.
We note that the project Mobile Office began its work at Domodedovo city in autumn 2009, when the activists opened the headquarter to get the complaints about corruption in village Matveevka at the 52nd km of the M4 "DON". The mobile group of specialists of Clean Hands with the civil support of Civil Control  and Civic Platform of party United Russia and other activists  opened  the headquarter of Clean Hands to get the complaints about corruption  from residents of Krasnodar region, as a result  200 complaints about corruption  were taken during several days of the visit in October 2010.

She was informed about it by the commandant of the Kremlin in ordering tone.
Important, that according Article 8 of Russian Law about assembly only Russian President has right to permit rally near Red Square and Kremlin.
As Marina Zlotnikova told our correspondent, one day before she and one of the activist was pressured and got some threats of their life and health by intelligent services.
In particular, Dmitry Ryabikov from Voskresensk (city 50-miles from Moscow) said, that he was pressured by 2 representatives of Russian intelligent services, as he said, two people are 35-40 years old detained him in the street and explained him, that gathering people to participate in rally on Vasilievsky descent is illegal and they said, he may be shooted and drowned in Moscow-river.
